Halloween Countdown: Munsters Squeak Toys

In 1965, Spanish company Laya produced a line of Munsters squeak toys.

Does anyone know why Bugs Bunny is involved in this? I couldn’t find much info about the company.

Interesting color choices for the toys. Though I remember also being surprised when I first saw a color photo of the Munsters (I’m not sure what I expected…real life grayscale?).

  1. What The Munsters and Bugs Bunny have in common is Mel Blanc. He did the voice of the clock in The Munsters.

    Wow–neat obscura there, Cyn. I wonder if I knew and forgot that. An old boyfriend used to collect Munsters, and he had variants of all sorts of things. The colours of these dolls are very “out there.” I think, too the card is a generic card for the toy company. These look foreign.

    Dana–The Addams Family needs equal time. 🙂
